Nostalgia is often examined as an element of the text (Jameson 1991). In this contribution, I argue that texts offer a number of spectator positions which can be perceived as nostalgic if the viewer has accumulated certain life experiences that render them so. Examining Babylon Berlin (2018-present), I argue that the programme offers a spectator position that can look at its Weimar of 1929 anxiously and nostalgically. This is a spectator position that assumes a viewer who is likely to be from the former West and who likely is younger than 55 years of age.
